Vanessa Carlton Shares Live “Matter Of Time” Video

Vanessa Carlton has been on tour for most of the fall and winter, and during that time a song of hers was filmed for all to enjoy: “Matter Of Time” is a lovely ballad off of her latest album, Liberman, and it forgoes her signature piano for a simple guitar accompaniment. Vanessa is a singer who frequently sounds even better live, and this performance of “Matter Of Time” captures the magic of her singing and songwriting beautifully.  See the live video of “Matter Of Time” below:

The performance was filmed in Nashville on December 17th, and features Vanessa’s husband, John McCauley, on guitar. They are joined by Skye Steele on violin and the Watson twins as background vocalists. Jesse DeFlorio directed, filmed, and edited the video.

Vanessa’s latest album, Liberman, came out last October. It was preceded by the singles “Blue Pool,” “Willows,” and “Operator,” and the song “House Of Seven Swords” was also released in November. You can buy Liberman on iTunes now. Keep checking back here for all the latest Vanessa Carlton news.

 

Lyrics for “Matter Of Time”

Give her all your darkness
Give her all your light
Love is like a carriage
It’s no spirit in the night
Like a wishing well where all your pennies fell

It’s only a matter of time
Before your heart is mine
Have you been searching?
You’ve been lookin’ the world over

When is it time to let go?
Is it then that you know?
All the peace that we’ve been bringing out of each other
Out of each other

Love is like a circuit:
A cursive neon sign
Writing her the letter
What’s the curve of your desire?
The cycle starts its run and we become what we become

It’s only a matter of time
Before your heart is mine
Have you been searching?
You’ve been lookin’ the world over

When is it time to let go?
Is it then that you know?
All the peace that we’ve been bringing out of each other
Out of each other

Give her all your darkness
Give her all your light
Love is like a carriage
It no spirit in the night
